SGP and Canopy Join Forces
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) and Canopy, formerly Markets Initiative, have formed an alliance to promote sustainability and environmental stewardship, further enhancing the value of each program and establishing a foundation for future collaborative efforts.
To kick off this alliance, the organizations will host a free webinar on Sept. 8 entitled, "Endangered Forests and the Lacey Act - What Printers Can Do to Minimize Risk."
SGP and Canopy will discuss the critical role printers have in protecting endangered forest lands and see what one printer has done to influence others. Other topics include the SGP-Canopy Alliance, the current state of global forest and paper issues, resources for finding eco-paper and forest conservation issues, the Lacey Act and its requirements, and the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement.

SGP board chariman Marcia Kinter said, "SGP's alliance with Canopy represents a significant step forward. Canopy's program offers printing companies the tools necessary to meet and exceed certification criteria relating to responsible sourcing. We are pleased to welcome Canopy and look forward to establishing a stronger working relationship."
